The Stylistics

The Stylistics are a soul music vocal group, and were one of the best-known Philadelphia soul groups of the 1970s. They formed in 1968, and were composed of lead Russell Thompkins, Jr., Herb Murrell, Airrion Love, James Smith, and James Dunn. All of their US hits were ballads, graced by the soaring falsetto of Russell Thompkins, Jr. and the lush productions of Thom Bell, which helped make the Stylistics one of the most successful soul groups of the first half of the 1970s." During the early 1970s, the group had twelve consecutive U.S. R&B top ten hits, including "Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)", "You Are Everything", "Betcha by Golly, Wow", "I'm Stone in Love with You", "Break Up to Make Up", and "You Make Me Feel Brand New". more »

I wrote a love song in sixteen bars
It says it all, it tells the truth.
This is my love song in sixteen bars
To tell the world that I'm really gone on you

I love you like the ocean loves the shore
Like flowers love the sun but even more
I love you like the heavens love the planets and the stars
There I've said it all in sixteen bars.

This is my love song in sixteen bars
To tell the world that I'm really gone on you

I promise you a thousand violins
A symphony of love that never ends
I promise you you'll always hear the sound of sweet guitars
There I've said it all in sixteen bars.

I wrote a love song in sixteen bars
It says it all, it tells the truth.
This is my love song in sixteen bars
To tell the world that I'm really gone on you
